Return To York County Tour Map

Shrewsbury Township - The metamorphic rocks of the Uplands Section in southern York County are complexly folded.  Although with seldom-seen continuous rock exposures, this folding is sometimes hard to detect, even to a trained geologist eye.  This is one of the nicest exposures showing isoclinal folding.  This exposure is found along the Heritage Rail Trail County Park, about 1.5 miles south of Glen Rock.  This point can be accessed from either the north by parking at the Glen Rock Parking Area or from the south by parking at the Railroad Parking Area and walking north about 3 miles. Rock is the schist of the Wissahickon Formation, which is interbedded with metabasalts and quartzites.  Scale on rock is 6 inches in length.
